obama and under by the way george bush -- it's not obama's bailout even though he pumps his chest and takes the applaud and beatings for it, was created by george w. bush voted in october and december. it was taken over by obama in the meantime. the a bomb administration picking up for bush came up with a deal to save three companies, general motors, chrysler and delphi. what is delphi? delphi is the old telco auto parts division of gm. you know delco batteries. we had gm that desperate to cut off its own parts and set off delphi as a separate company which immediately pretty quickly went bankrupt. well, down went the vulture's and they pick.delphi corp. out of bankruptcy court for 67 cents, a darned good deal for the entire auto parts division of general motors. 67 cents a share. within two years they flipped it. they went public at $22 a share. share. that is it 3200% prophet that they weren't done. they weren't done. delphi had 29 plans in the u.s. and the delphi group sold it back to gm and the rest, every single plant was sold, was sent off to china. every single uaw job, eve
is the same thing that actually was practiced in the george w. bush administration. president obama isn't using george w. bush's name, but the message is actually pretty crystal clear. and you're seeing these two competing closing arguments at the very end. >> with that being the argument from the president that, you know, especially before hurricane sandy it was when mitt romney unveiled this notion that he is the change candidate here, how has his campaign, or have they effectively fought back that what he is offering back at this late game, 3, 2, 1, what we is a at the bottom, he offering anything that proves he would in fact bring in change? >> well, he hasn't rebutted those criticisms of how his policies are different than george w. bush's. the one he has pointed out, and he did this at the debate is he would actually balance the budget, something that george w. bush didn't do. so that's where he says he would be different. but when you actually look at a lot of the advisers, a lot of the economic policies, they do seem the same. and he hasn't really rebutted that. but what he is a
of president george w. bush's service in the alabama national guard popped up in the last couple days or weeks of the election, in 2000 there were reports of a dui arrest that he had in connecticut a couple decades before. in both cases, they didn't move many boats. the october surprise can completely alter a presidential contest, but italy has not done that that much. host: you noted the examples of george w. bush. we know as it is that an october surprise release ways voters. guest: last-minute things can sway voters. i cited examples in that article. not necessarily in the presidential race but let us look the other races right now. in india, the senate candidate murdoch looked like he was slightly above joe donnelly going into the final debate between the men last monday. in that debate he made some comments about rates that were taken -- vitter able to be used in a democratic campaign ad. those comments have dominated the states. the political space for the last couple days. and it has sunk mourdocks place. what we saw there was a real moment in which a last second declaration by a candid
phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point victory in 2008. we really are tossups state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is there early voting and how do the hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there's not early voting, but there's absentee ballot. you have to sign a form saying you are not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, the polls are open from about 7:00 until 7:00. some locations are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the recount laws in the
florida went for george w. bush by 537 votes? out of millions cast. >> i am. because you can't ever get that out of your head because it was just such a surprise. i can tell you, you know, it's not whether i hear them, it's whether both these campaigns hear them. one of the things i was listening to james baker the other day who of course was the lead lawyer for the then-candidate bush in 2000 who said, look, none of us ever expected this would happen. we weren't ready for a recount when it suddenly was obvious they needed one. both sides have lawyers that have been studying sometimes automatic recounts in some states. they've been looking at all the voter laws in these swing states just for the possibility that this could happen in ohio or colorado or florida or, you know, any of the -- virginia, any of those other swing states. >> you're seeing evidence in ohio, john, of a lot of lawyers getting ready to get involved if necessary. >> reporter: and let's hope it doesn't happen. but they're watching this through the early voting process. there are observers when you go to the early voti

related to how they perceived their significance. so, for example, george bush actually allocated michael brown who was the former -- i just had to read this out, because i was just blown away. michael brown who was the former commissioner of judges and stewards for the international arabian horse association, that's who headed fema. clinton was the first -- was the first president to allocate the fema head who actually had experience -- >> disaster. >> -- disaster management. it's not political. it's about poverty. it's about race. and when we think about disaster preparedness as well as recovery, the ways in which these two americas break down, you see that again and again and again. >> it's also i think the other point here is that it's something that will happen i think often is people on the left we get into this defensive crouch around the role of government and so we defend the states' actions in the abstract, but if you talk to lefty activist who are part of common ground and katrina it was government bureaucracy who was their enemy. and folks on staten island are frustrated and a
to george w. bush, but in 2004 went to john kerry. the president had a nine-point victory in 2008. we really are a tossup state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is their early voting? how do new hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there are absentee ballots. you have to sign a form that says you not be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, they are open from 7:00 until 7:00. some are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnout in the country. other statistical interesting statistics -- statistical facts are that we are one of the least taxed state in the nation. the least taxed state. we have no income tax, no sales tax. both the democrat and republican candidates will campaign on that issue, pledging that they will not have an income tax or sales tax. are gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue, as a matter of fact. host: talk about the recount laws in the state of new hampshire. what are the rules for that? guest: we have
organized campaigns that we've seen in recent memory was the 2004 george w. bush campaign. karl rove engineered a very impressive microtargeting effort, where they started to integrate people's consumer preferences, with their voting data, to try to more precise, so instead of just saying ok, we're going to target everyone that we know is, say, you know, a latino woman, you can actually individually start to target people based on what kind of car they drive or what kind of cereal they eat, all kind factors from when you fill out surveys or that kind of thing. the obama campaign did that even more impressive in 2008 and they've been building on that ever since, so they've built a formidable, digital integrated data targeting effort that they have put together with this vast network of field offices on the ground, and neighborhood teams and volunteers and through facebook and everything else. so they know practically who all of their voters are. the millions and millions of people that they expect or hope they can drive out to the polls to vote for obama. >> molly ball is a staff writ
states of america much like they attacked george bush with katrina. bush made the same phone calls that the president is making now except to the governor of louisiana and the mayor of new orleans, all turned down his help. and the rest is history. but they are trying to play politics with all of this and global warming, they are trying to blame somehow in the future to elect him these things won't happen. all the while they forget their president barack obama cut fema. megyn: the folks who are opposing governor romney in this race are talking about he wants to abolish fema. he wants to get rid of fema because of an answer he gave during a debate to john king of cnn talking about how we need to make cuts in certain programs and talked about our debt. that's my own characterization of it. he's right. fema is kinds of a catchall. a lot of times it's under turned. knowing they will have to get more money to in fact fund it. when they do that all these happy members of congress are glad to put every pork barrel project in the world into it they couldn't get vote on in a regular lay in
prediction? >> absolutely. and frankly, a lot of analysts agree with that. if you look at what of george bush's own pollsters said when he was president and running was that no republican can actually get to the white house with at least 40% of the hispanic vote. this was in 2004. imagine that percentage has had to have gone up just a little bit given the expanded population of hispanic voters. and right now, you have mitt romney at less than 25% nationally, and less than 25% in each of the key swing states that had large hispanic populations. like nevada, like colorado, like florida. so i think they should be very worried when it comes to these battleground states, and even in ohio, where you have 166,000 registered latino voters going out to the polls, and an election this tight, they could absolutely be the deciding factor. i think it's going to be the october surprise of this election. >> i thought we already had one of those. >> early november. >> let me ask you, because we were asking our viewers before the break, if you could run the campaign in the last three days, what would you do i
romney and ryan in ohio next tuesday, as they did for george bush in 2004 and 2000, i think that romney could take that state. stuart: now, are the evangelicals voting positively for mitt romney? because they like mitt romney? or are they voting negatively against president obama? because they don't like president obama? >> well, the good news for romney is that it's a combination of both. romney has done outreach to them. and richard land of the southern baptist convention has endorsed him. did that yesterday. he met with billy graham about three weeks ago, graham is publicly supporting him. and i'm told that his selection of paul ryan was a huge plus, because ryan is a practicing catholic, very religious, the evangelicals, like paul ryan. on the negative side, they were, they noticed this battle that the catholic church got into with the obama administration over the obamacare requirement that they provide contraceptive services in their hospitals. the evangelicals have enormous amounts of outreach to people, and they-- to hospitals and such and they saw that this was going to affect
term of george w. bush. would you agree with that line of attack has not worked? >> not only do i not agree with that line of aattack. look at conversations we're having. listen to what voters tell us. look at ohio where the fact mitt romney was against the auto bailout, that mitt romney writes an article and says let detroit go interrupt, that's a severely conservative position. the fact mitt romney said he wanted to see roe vs. wade overternove overturned, that's a seriously conservative position. the fact that is they're severely conservative and far away from where the majority of the american people are. it's very important in this campaign that people understand their choices. >> bill clinton, obviously, very important to shore up the base. let's talk about the impact of hurricane sandy. do you agree that it could hurt the democrats more? that the obama campaign has depended so much on the ground game, and if that gets disrupted in some of these key states, it would be a disadvantage more to the president than it would be to romney "nightly newmitt romn? >> i will say the ob
is the recovery is much, much weaker than any recovery we've ever seen. only the george w. bush recovery is on par with this in terms of recovery from a recession for job creation. so what we have here is a situation that is improved from the conditions to the end of the recession. it's unquestionably improved. but not improved by enough to be anywhere near where it needs to be for the vast majority of americans who have seen their income stag nate or for the 12 million people who are still looking for work and can't find a job. >> craig, what about the stock market getting a boost because of yesterday's consumer confidence report which gives the highest rating since 2008? so that and you take in the new jobs report, what does it mean for the overall economy? >> and potentially how people feel about it and this presidential election? >> i think one of the positive things about today's unemployment report is that it corroborate rates some of the other positive news trickling in from places like the stock market, the number of people claiming insurance has been edging down steadily. as you were sayi
a violater is china? we're mad at them for protectionist policies, but george w. bush put limits on products, but we allow the currency to get weak? >> yeah, well, china's run the largest program of manufacturing subsidies in the world, and they are not compliant with the world trade organization obligations. it's been encouraging property piracy matters. the international trade commission in 2009 said china's ip violations cost businesses $48 billion, and if china enforced intellectual property laws, american businesses would have employed 923,000 more americans in the united states. china has been the subject of the wto complaints, and it's lost all of them. clearly, we have a big issue with them. dennis: okay. someone to combat them, and i have not heard much from either side. thank you for being with us donald chang and donald gross. >> thank you. >> debate this, labors, unions, collective bargaining, brett mcmahon of miller and long destruction, and bill dyne author of "state of the unions" here at noon eastern. cheryl: live at reagan airport in washington, d.c. where they are trying to
. on the other hand, george bush 43 had his best moment, i always thought, at ground zero when he put his arm around that fireman that day and said, "i can hear you, and they're going to be hearing you in other parts of the world." that was enormous symbolism for the country, reassuring, in command. and at the same time, it said we're going to act here. and governor christie is a jersey guy, through and through. and what we're seeing in the last 24 hours with him, i think, is what i've seen with him over the last couple of years, wherever he's appeared. i didn't think he had the greatest keynote in the world, but the fact is that he is what he is. when he began to raise hell with the mayor of atlantic city for not following his orders, saying i don't give a damn about the election, i think people respond to that, democrat or republican. >> because it's real. president bush, you mentioned that moment as well as the first pitch soon after -- >> at the world series, incredible. >> incredibly symbolic and brave on a number of levels. he probably shouldn't have done it, but he did it. >> these kin
bill clinton and george h.w. bush raised for their entire presidential campaigns 20 years ago. we're joined by bill cohen, a columnist for bloomberg view and the author of "money and power, how goldman sachs came to rule the world." what do you make of the amount of money that's being spent, but specifically the so-called social welfare organizations who are completely unaccountable and completely unidentifiable because nobody knows who they are, they spent millions of dollars and 83% of the spending has been used to attack democrats. >> well, once again it's the lack of accountability that we see across government. we see it across wall street. to be able to spend that kind of money targeting your message against democrats and not know who is behind it i don't think is doing our democracy any good. and i think, you know, once we get through this election cycle, i think that's one thing that we need to take a new look at and see if we can possibly change that. there was that incredibly good program on front line the other day examining this very long and it was mind boggling the m
, florida. they're the same ones that george w. bush won in 2004 and that then senator obama wan in 2008. these are the swing voters. and part of the candidates' closing strategy is to hit at as many of these areas as possible before election day. because the latest polls show that the race in battle ground states like ohio have president obama leading mitt romney by five points when counting both early voters and ohioans who will actually vote on election day. but the overall race is a dead heat among ohioans who are going to cast their ballot on november 6. so how does president obama or mitt romney break the stalemate among the voters? they can basically either woo the undecideds or fire up the base. for president obama, it has become increasingly clear that the strategy is about one word, early. >> we can vote early in illinois, we can vote early in illinois. just like you can vote right now in florida. p just like you can vote early in colorado. just like you can vote early here in nevada. you can vote early. anybody who is here who has not yet voted, i want you to go vote. vote. vo
me now, mark theisen, former speech writer for george w. bush. he broke if the news on the briefing on september 10. also simon rosenberg. he's the former campaign adviser to bill clinton. gentlemen, welcome back. catherine has broken this news. it's a classified cable. but she is our chief intelligence correspondents and she has done great reporting on this story and many others. she says that they were warning -- they were saying we need extra help. they were saying the libyan mission cannot be trusted. they were saying the died are related groups are becoming more brazen and they have little fear of reprisal. now, you confirmed with the administration that the president was briefed about 9/11 attacks the day before. where does that leave us? >> the question becomes what was he briefed on about libya in that meeting. there is nothing listed for september 10, 2012. but an official confirmed he did have that briefing on 9/11 threats and mitigation efforts. the question becomes in light of catherine's reporting that there were multiple warnings coming through the system that al qaeda
in the tidewater region. you can see it is compared with 2004 when george w. bush won the state. you can see that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized s
